The deadline to apply for tax exemptions in Ticonderoga is approaching. Property owners have until March 1 to seek a reduction on their tax bills, according to Patti Osier, Ti sole assessor.
continued Anyone who is uncertain if they qualify for a tax exemption or who isn’t certain if they are receiving one should call the assessor’s office, Osier said.
“I know it can seem complicated to a lot of people, but I can help them,” Osier said. “People will need paperwork to prove they’re eligible for an exemption, but it’s not a difficult process.”
Information on assessments and exemptions is also available online through the town of Ticonderoga website — www.townofticonderoga.com — and the Essex County Office of Real Property website — www.co.essex.ny.us/realproperty.asp.
Osier, who is responsible for 3,500 parcels in Ticonderoga, said the tentative town assessment roll must be filed by May 1. Grievance Day, for those who wish to challenge their assessments, will be May 22. The final Ti assessment roll will be filed July 1.
